binding tape on 09/10/2007 22:05:08 MDT Print View

Hello all,
I'm trying to get all the materials together for the six moons MYOG shelter, and I'm having a little trouble. Is there a website that has all the materials I'll need? The item that has been the hardest to find is the 1" binding tape. HELP! Honestly i just don't know what i'm looking for.

Thru-Hiker carries everything except the binding tape.

Call a few fabric stores for the binding tape if you feel you must have it but I've made tarptents and tarps using rolled hems for the edges and flat-felled seams for ridgelines. The largest of the tarps stood up to winds that converted aluminum canoes into unguided missiles so the flat felled seams are certainly strong enough.
